Summer is gorne, winter is coming
A full week of 30+ temps out at work for me. A few degrees cooler in town
35 forecast for today, as well as next Monday.
Warm, but not too hot.
Autumn, give it another month, then its the best time of the year for general living here in Melbourne
EC suggests 10+ days of warm to hot days here in Melbourne
So hot, the dog has melted.
Beats 40+. While much warmer than average it's not unusual for this time of year.
When will it snow?
Somewhere between now and end of autumn.
week after next
50cm down to about 1000ASL
1st of Autumn - I'm so happeeeee!!!
Still summer in Perth isn't it?
i stayed up at the farm last night, beautifully cool (would be 35+ up there now), but the grass is so cooked it just doesnt exist
no, we don't have daylight savings
it's actually not unpleasant this week with 32 as the highest max in the next 7 day.
The 1st is the thin end of the wedge though - cold weather is on the (distant) horizon!
summer is not done yet.....Team Bears like it hot.....sunny still and hot with long daylight hours.....
let winter come at its own speed...still much work to be contemplated......
Wangaratta has a week of temps just under 40degC max and Mt Hotham averaging 20deg max for same period with minimums not below 13degC!!!
High 30's for the foreseeable future although the nights are slightly cooler now so at least sleep is possible without the aid of ac. No realistic chance of rain on the horizon either. Winds still generally north to north west. Maybe towards Easter there will be a change in circumstances , damn I hope so.
At least its officially Autumn so the yearly countdown begins at last. Anxiously we await the first reports of dew , frost , and snowfall.
34 at chez currawong today.
Albury forecast for the next week
36, 37, 36, 38, 39, 38
March long term mean max 27.5
roll on equinox
Acksherly,,, still is summer in Oz. To make it easy for the folk to remember dates, the official first day of season is tied to the first day of a month. The equinox is the real start of Autumn
pedant. piss orf.
You can't handle the truth !
In Australia it is 1st or March & 1st of September. By definition.
UK met defines Spring as march, april and may.
In other countries the transitional seasons may start on the equinox as you say. Or they could be something completely different.
And the 4 equal seasons model is pretty simplistic. Seasons vary a lot with location. Lots of people have suggested better seasons for parts of Australia.
here's one of suggestion from Dr Tim Entwhistle for southern Australia http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/ockhamsrazor/sprinter-and-sprummer/5705564
Sprinter and sprummer and autmer and wintaum
And you would support Sheldon's "prevening"?
Autumn will come early this year, based on the past 3 seasons.
Autumn only ever comes when winter rubs hard enough
How so ?
Seasons all seem to have all been later past few years....IIRC.
Edit: rip from WZ below fwiw.
Although leap year may have given us an extra day of summer, it's not going to feel like autumn anytime soon.
After the hottest summer days in 10 years, Sydney siders are wanting some respite. Unfortunately, a run of days of 30 degrees or above will start tomorrow, cooling only mid-way through next week. The coming week has the potential to be the hottest March week in 33 years, maybe even longer.
Although it will be a bit cloudy this Wednesday, mostly sunny conditions are otherwise set to continue for the next week. This will make it feel like an extended summer - Sydney averaged nine hours and 40 min of sunshine per day last month (three hours per day more than average), making it the city's sunniest February in 40 years.
Warm nights are also going to continue, being consistently two-to-three degrees above average for this time of year. The last 12 nights has been the warmest stretch in seven years, staying above 20.5 degrees each night.
Overall, most of March looks very warm and humid, but Sydney should start to see some reprieve towards the end of this month and going into April.
May 2015 had winter starting a little early, then it ended abruptly at the end of August/start of Sept, then Spring ended early and summer started early. I'm hoping that summer ends quick and autumn comes in early too to continue the trend.
When I were whippersnapper the switch out of Summer heat and humidity to mist and mellow fruitfulness was usually in the first week or two of March. It has shifted a couple of weeks later in the last couple of decades.
Forecast for the next 7 days north of the Divide is for low to mid 30's throughout. Likewise out here at work for me in the Yarra Valley.
2-4 degrees cooler in town. Not too bad I guess. no doubt we'll have the arvo-early evening sea breezes.
Not unusual to have this sort of heat in early to mid March, at least in recent times.
here's hoping it tails off and cooler autumn weather settles in.
Autumnal weather is my favourite.
19 years ago I spent all of March in Mt Beauty - it was 30+ nearly every day and locals assured us that was normal. Since I've been living here I would also say it is normal. This week's forecast of 7 consecutive days over 35 is unusual, but March being a hot month is not
love those cold crisp blue sky days
hate the smoke of controlled burns: a necessary evil but quite unpleasant, not good for asthma either
I love Autumn.
That is all.
Autumn - the schizo season.
Wants to be hot, wants to be cold.
Do not like.
Yes I agree we have had snowfall in May last few years. Not uncommon.
Last year was very good season opening. I had not forgot .
Just my sense that the seasons in general seem to be running "late".
Perhaps the Calendar we observe is out of sync with the change in climate / or change in timing of the seasonal cycle.
I love Autumn , cool nights , warm days , swell & warm water.
Nearing the end of SDS , bring on the goodness of winter.
just need some trees to start going golden now
They are changing colour here already
I suspect another 4 weeks of summery conditions here
Took the dog on the long lunch walk today, tad too warm around the Boronia oval
When is this heatwave going to end? See that mid thirties up until Wednesday next week!!!! Come on guys be brave is there anything out there to move all this hot air?
I don't see it breaking any time soon.
EC says warm to hot over the SE right through Friday week.
Made it to 36C at Coldstream AWS.
Weatherzone Darwin says 33.5 feels like 40.1 it is a bit ordinary.
Leaving work and it's 36C.
In town it's only 23C.
13C differential over 40kms, no cool change, just the seabreeze
hi woggy. Long time since I've seen you around here
Arriving home in the Upper Yarra the thermometer at back door suggested the same max had been reached. Beautiful evening now though.
